The Certified Energy Manager®


Certified Measurement and Verification Professional

Given that shipowners can no longer ignore the environmental issues when making financial and economic decisions, GHGES Marine Solutions provides its clients with simple and cost-effective solutions for reducing fuel consumption and thereby reduce their greenhouse gases emissions.

We offer a personalized approach that is tailored to each ship and focused on seafarers.

GHGES Marine Solutions is a company composed of marine chief engineers and certified energy experts that have the following designations: Certified Energy Manager (CEM), Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (PCMV), and member of the Association of Energy Engineers (EEA), and who specialize in energy efficiency and GHG emissions reduction.

The company has developed a unique approach for implementing energy efficiency management programs in the maritime sector. We have carried out more than 125 projects on dozens of ships.



Climate change is an issue of serious concern that requires us to react quickly by making adjustments to our processes and procedures.

Today, thanks to the financial assistance programs of the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ), there is an opportunity for Québec-based shipowners to take a further step toward reducing GHG emissions.

As a result of the monitoring mechanisms put in place by the MTQ, energy savings will be measured, quantified and proven, thereby lessening financial risk for shipowners and, at the same time, bringing about GHG reductions for each method or project undertaken.

News from GHGES

GHGES Solution Marine is proud to have partnered with Groupe Desgagnés to develop operating procedures and checklists for the group’s new LNG-powered ships.

During the past year, we have assisted several shipowners in their efforts to become energy efficient and to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We have also been working on an electrification project that will enable one of our partners to further lower their carbon emissions. In 2016, we identified projects that, upon completion, will cut GHG emissions by more than 4,200 tons, or the equivalent of 1,298 tons of fuel.

Remote Tracking System

This year, we created a new product, the Marine Energy Tracker (MET) ®, that will enable shipowners to monitor their ships’ efficiency by means of a powerful and innovative web-based platform. The product is a natural extension of our current service offerings and is more than a simple tracking system.

After an energy audit, we develop a variety of algorithms to meet the specific needs of each ship. The core report addresses the differences between performance indicators elaborated during the audit and are subsequently calculated in GHG and in dollar cost terms in relation of the selected time period. The system is tailored to the needs of Canadian shipowners. It takes into account navigation on inland waters, the Great Lakes, locks, and the St. Laurence Seaway. The result is a more accurate analysis of the Canadian reality and your specific fleet.

Furthermore, there is no need for costly fuel meters that are costly to install because our system calculates consumption in an indirect and yet precise manner. It’s a true innovation!

This is one of the reason that this project was partly funded by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC).

You know that eventually you will need a fleet distance monitoring system, in order to increase your fleet efficiency. Now the time has come. The MET ® is abordable and based on a open architecture that will eventually allow you to control and analyse your date base. No extra cost no traps. We install and test-it for you. All the data are secured.

Energy Audit

Before taking corrective actions or implementing new methods to improve a ship’s energy efficiency, an accurate assessment of its condition must first be conducted.

This information is essential for identifying the most cost-effective projects and constitutes the baseline mesurement for proving the results obtained.

Preparing Applications for Financial Aid

Enable the shipowner to reduce project costs by means of a financial contribution from the Government. Contact GHGES for more details.

Sponsorship Program

Purpose: Create a culture of energy efficiency within the business.

Method: Meet with the main stakeholders (superintendents, fleet managers) and explain the program framework.
We provide classroom training on incorporating energy efficiency into individual ships as well as entire fleets. The basic principles governing energy conservation are also covered.

Organizing and Supporting Project Implementation

GHGES makes suggestions with respect to system upgrades, equipment choices and control logics. We also recommend specialized contractors who are qualified to do the work.

We perform the commissioning and start-up of the equipment.

Establishing a Monitoring and Follow-up Plan

A monitoring plan is an essential tool for proving results.

GHGES has the expertise (CMVP) to carry out the plan which, in turn, is critical to successfully completing projects and obtaining financial assistance. In addition, the company is able to demonstrate to shipowners the cost-effectiveness of their investments.
